>> samantha: good morning to you. before you hit the road before thanksgiving, pack the car, right? whoever is lucky enough to be handed that task this morning, you got to bundle up. we are in the 30s in cleveland, but with the breeze factored in it feels cooler. if you pack the car in akron this morning, good morning to you. it is 30, and we're running at about 22 in new philly, 24 out in wayne county. definitely a chill in the air. of our area, no rain at all, but there is some cloud cover along the lakeshore and out to the west. i think clouds will continue to build through the morning. you'll also notice a little pink and white popping up out west towards toledo. that is most likely not making it down to the ground. the air is very dry, so when rain initially tries to move towards us, it will have a tough time making it down to the
in the day. here's a wide map. if you travel this morning east of cleveland, you're good. no problems at all. west in indiana down to the south in kentucky and farther west into eastern illinois there are showers, and there's a little wintery precipitation that actually is making it down to the ground to our north. that stayed up north. they have some snow, so if you're going that way, please be careful. again, this system is headed in our general direction for later for my local travelers going to grandma's house today in canton or out in ashtabula, you're going to be fine this morning. we don't have any rain around here until this afternoon. i do think it will be scattered as first, and there may be a little sleet that mixes in 1:00 onward, but the sleet is brief. this is mostly a rain event. again, around 1:00 would be the earliest onset, and then on-again/off-again rain into the afternoon. steadiest rains will fall
chance is high this evening running at about 80%. so if you have family coming in to town, let them know if they're coming in late tonight, they are going to be driving through some rain. some showers might even hang around through early tomorrow morning, but it would be very, very light rain. most of thanksgiving is cloudy with a little drizzle possible. upper 40s on turkey day. decent thanksgiving and could be sunnier, but that's okay. it we have more rain on the way, though, for friday. light rainshowers are possible through the day. could even see a wintery mix on your saturday. i don't think everybody will see it, but especially along the lakeshore and east of cleveland. then by sunday we finally get the sunshine we need. >> laura: let it come back. sam, right now i'm using the waze app, which we're both big fans of, right? can we switch to the waze app so
and give everyone great information about how to get around town today and also leave out. this will give you fantastic tips on the road. you hear about accidents. you hear about reroutes. you can put in your destination and use it as a navigation system. if you're out there right now, no problems at all for you. now we can switch over to the tips that i have that come in to us from waze. today, unfortunately, wednesday is your worst day of travel around thanksgiving time. better off if you leave before 10:00th let's talk about your return. sunday, a very, very, very busy travel time. monday would be a little better if you can stand to wait until monday or leaving saturday. you definitely want to avoid the 11:00 in the morning to 6:00 in the evening time of travel. you're at a 240% increase in traffic jams, 100% increase in accident alert and 69% increase in hazard alerts. that's going to be a busy time there. we have more tips coming up
11 11:00". thanksgiving day means for a lot of people a big day to watch so will football. i might watch a little. as the coaches get the game plan together, you should put one together, too, so you don't overeat. >> tia: our dietitian says the game plan should involve breakfast. skipping it may cause you to consume more calories at dinner. pay attention to your portion sizes and try to use a smaller plate. simperman says to slow down eating to give your stomach a chance to tell your bayne it's actually full, and that generally takes about 20 minutes. >> brian: i don't know about that. >> tia: what don't you know? >> brian: i'm going to overeat anyway, right? 6:26. a quick look at the rad dar shows things quiet right now. >> mother nature must stay home on the busiest travel day of the year. what you can expect on the road and in the air.
>> brian: good morning, everyone. this is live on 480. if you're on the roads you may be one of the 48 million people expected to travel at least 50 miles for the thanksgiving holiday. >> tia: here's a live look at hopkins airport this morning if you fly to your destination. better throw some patience into your carry-on bag. a record 27 million people are expected to fly between now and sunday.
now. >> brian: in our effort to keep you completely covered, we have you ahead of the storm this morning. a system moving in from the west is going to affect your holiday travel plans later today. >> tia: we have live team coverage for today's busy travel day. >> brian: denise zarrella is at cle. we begin with the first alert forecast, and our meteorologist sam roberts. hey, sam. >> samantha: good morning. and good morning if you're just rolling out of bed. it'sle thanksgiving, thanksgiving eve. no rain to drive through in our local area . if you're traveling south or east, you'll be fine. those who travel west this morning need to take it a little bit slower. you can see on the wide map here i'm showing you northwest ohio. i don't have any reports of wintery precipitation from 75 east, but i have a little report of mixed precip around defiance.
most of this pink stuff that you see here is lifting off towards the north and east. i think most of this misses us, and plus the air here is really dry. so i think anything that does come in initially is going to have a tough time making it down to the ground. this what i think will be moving in later. you can see rain is widespread in indiana and northern kentucky. that's lifting off towards the east and northeast, which means your evening travel plans in bit slow, but best time for local travel this morning or midday. in the afternoon we're okay. there might be a little rain around, but again, tonight, yuck. i would not want to be driving in that rain. laura. >> laura: out there on the road this morning, we are actually moving smoothly so far. heads-up, if you're driving there's a really big tip out there coming in from waze saying you should try to get on the road before 10:00.
get caught up in the biggest congestion time. peak time is 3:00. between 10:00 and 6:00 this evening, you'll be busy on the roads. this morning looks really good. a lot of green to start off. we had an earlier accident on i-480 in twinsburg. it cleared. that was a rollover there. we have a water main break in brunswick. so careful in that area. going to have a reroute until westbound mentor to cleveland, 28-minute drive. canton to cleveland is 56 minutes, 27 minutes if you drive in inbound from elyria and strongsville to cleveland also running on time. you are all in the green pretty much anywhere that you may be headed if you head downtown right now. your akron drive is coming up at 6:49. as i mentioned, today is one of the biggest travel days of the year on the roads, which means it will be the day where more of
well. aaa gave us some tips to keep you safe and make sure you're not one of the ones that gets stranded. of the 43.5 million americans expected to hit the roads this holiday weekend, aaa says they expect to rescue more than 370,000. aaa officials say the most popular reasons for holiday breakdowns each year are tires, batteries, and lockouts. for your tires, nails are often unavoidable, but you can make sure you condition. stick an upside-down penny in the tire tread. if you see space above lincoln's head, your tires don't meet the legal minimum and won't stop as quickly as one with 4/36 of an inch. if it's been a while for your beert, you can stop in many places for a free battery check or check with your local mechanic. as for lockouts, that's up to our memory. hopefully now that we know how
before we hop out of the car. also, pack an emergency roadside kit for the drive including items like blankets, a chang of clothes, snacks and bottled water. guys. >> tia: you can bet hopkins is packed through the day. >> no question about it. even if you drop off or pick up family members, good idea to leave early. cleveland 19's denise zarrella is getting answers this morning and continues the live team coverage from cle. good morning, >> denise: good morning. definitely great advice, you do want to leave early. we're impressed how it's going so far. this is a live look at what i see here. there's absolutely no line at all at that tsa checkpoint, and as far as we know, no delays right now at the airport. that's all great news. now, we know that additional staff was assigned or will be assigns during the heavy travel period today, including customer service personnel and we have
si you should expect longer lines at some point at the ticket counts and three security checkpoints here. you are being encouraged by airport officials to arrive at least two hours before the scheduled departure time. we did get to speak with the airport director a short time ago who said how they prepared for this huge travel day. >> we've been preparing for quite some time. you may recall last year we did a construction period, and we're happy to say that's finished now. we restrued checkpoints and the ticket areas, so it's a lot more larger now. you can get through a lot quicker, and that's why you don't see a lot of lines. >> denise: so far so good. one great travel tip to leave you with. take one last look at the bag and make sure there's no sharp obs in it so you aren't caught up or hold up anybody in the tsa line, for now we're at cleveland hopkins international airport with this live report.

use separate cutting boards and plates and everything else when handling the bird to avoid cross contamination, and make sure you cook the turkey until it reaches 165 degrees fahrenheit as measured by a food thermometer. you should check the turkey in three spots. the breast, the thigh and the thickness part of the wing. one more thing. once the turkey is all done, don't dig right in. i know hard not to do it. let it stand for 20 minutes. it will allow the juices to process. >> if you like to get something to your out of town family members this christmas, how about the sweet smell of ohio. yeah. you can now buy the ohio aroma in candle form for just 30 bucks. homesick candles makes this scent. what does ohio smell like? to me ohio smells like ohio state smacking around michigan in football every year.
carnations and honeysuckle, sam. >> samantha: it smells like the west side market. a little bit of everything, right? what's another good smell? fourth street, sometimes you smell all the food from the restaurants. maybe some of that other stuff. maybe you smell like beer. i don't know. i think ohio smells nice. time is 6:47 on this wednesday morning. why do i keep forgetting what day it is? i haven't even eaten any turkey yet, and i'm already in a turkey around northeast ohio, we're good, but loading up the car this morning, it's cold outside. we're in the 20s. bundle up. you need to be all bundled up through the morning, and maybe even into the afternoon. no rain, though, right now. here's your afternoon forecast. if that's when you head to the airport, we'll be in the 30s with scattered showers and then our steadiest rains come in this evening and overnight with temperatures in the 40s. temperatures actually rising at
normally they rides in the afternoon and drop at night. today is a little different. in terms of our radar situation right now, if you are about to get on the road, i don't think you should have to worry about anything locally in our coverage area. out to the west there are showers here in indiana, and this is actually mixing with a little bit of sleet and snow. i don't have many reports of mixed precipitation or snow in northwest ohio, but i have one po seeing some mixed precip. so be careful if you travel that way. down to the south, nothing happening right now, but all this mess in indiana is headed our way. so that's what we'll need to be aware of during the afternoon and evening hours. until then, just mostly cloudy and cold. temperatures hit about 41 midday, and then 43 at 3:00. then we just stay in the 40s for the rest of the night with those afternoon scattered showers.
1:00, and again, most of this will be just an old cold rain. look at tonight's forecast. scattered showers this evening. if you have family coming into town and they're not going to arrive here until the evening, let them know they're arriving to some rain. but thanksgiving looks a little bit better. we'll have cloudy skies, so not much sunshine. it will be a little warmer. upper 40s with drizzle possible. friday light rain in the forecast and mid-40s, so pretty chilly there. we a threat of light rain. by saturday we get flow off the lake. so i did go with a wintery mix along the lakeshore and east of cleveland. it will be a cold day, but all is better by sunday, laura. partly sunny and upper 40s. >> laura: that's good. sunday is a big return day. a lot of people are headed back home after eating a lot of turkey dinner. keep that in mind. it's a busy day for you.
